Water resources (letter)by Bryan KeaneyNews Weekly
, September 27, 2008
I refer to the excellent letter by John A.H. Brown ("Answer to water crisis", News Weekly
, August 2). John is the retired chief water resources engineer of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Authority.
He designed the Shoalhaven dam that was never built. This would have cost $60 million and would deliver more water than the $2 billion desalination plant at present being built by the NSW state Labor Government, with the associated huge power consumption.Bryan Keaney,
